Ohio State University Football Memorabilia Seized During Local Tattoo Parlor Investigation

An investigative team from WBNS-10 TV acquired a letter from the U.S. Attorney's office addressed to Ohio State's Associative Vice President, Sandra Anderson. The letter lists all Ohio State Memorabilia seized from Edward Rife, the tattoo parlor owner who allegedly gave discounted tattoos to Ohio State football players in exchange for tickets and memorabilia. Some of these items include game worn helmets, pants and gloves, autographed collectibles, and even a 2003 national championship ring. While the letter does list specific players and which items they allegedly traded or sold to Mr. Rife, most of the players' names have been censored.

The U.S. Attorney's Office has stated that no football players are linked with Mr. Rife's drug trafficking case, but they are asking for Ohio State University's help in contacting the players in case the items seized were wrongfully obtained. Six Ohio State football players will be suspended for part of the 2011 season, while head coach, Jim Tressel is suspended for the first five games.

Mike Smeth is the CEO and Founder of The Cardboard Connection. After collecting baseball cards as a child, he took a 12-year hiatus from the hobby. One muggy summer day in 2006 he unexpectedly came across his childhood card collection while packing up for a move. He began sorting through them so he could sell them on Craigslist. Somewhere between the 3rd and 4th box, he rediscovered his passion for collecting and hasn't looked back since. You can find Mike on Google+ and Twitter @mikesmethcc.
